My name is Monica Multer, I am currently a sophomore at UC Berkeley who just has a lot on her mind. I enjoy literature of every kind, going running, hanging out in Santa Cruz and Berkeley or with my friends, traveling anywhere, playing with my dog, and of course writing. I am just an overall eccentric person always striving for something more in life.
I want to become an author some day, I do work ranging from poetry, short stories, books, or just plain randomness that pops into my brain. The stuff I write can be funny, dark, abstract, all depending on my mood.
This blog is just a way of expressing myself, anyone can follow along as each day I post a new story of some sort. This is the first thing I have ever done like this so take it easy on me. I hope you enjoy and please comment on everything so I can become a better writer and person.
I fancy myself a people person, but not in the aspect that most people think. I enjoy people some days and the other days I come close to loathing them. In the end I am simply fascinated by the way people act and why they do the things they do. My blog is a way for me to explore my thoughts about the people I know, the people I love, the people I hate, all the people I see, and finally all the people I know nothing about. When I see people I see potential. Not just their ability to grow or succeed but the potential of their very being. What they really are or could become if they put their minds to it. Everyone has the possibility to succeed but only the ones who reach out and grasp that potential can move forward. I try to show people this. I show that there is darkness and light in every heart and mind you pass by. Strangers, children, parents, relatives, everyone has a story. I think it is my job to tell their stories.
Through photos, stories, and poems I am writing out the stories of the people around you. The people you walk by everyday and don’t stop to talk with, the people you worked with for years but never asked about their lives. The people who are alone, drowning in a secret, or a story about how they came to be. I am their storyteller. Sharing their lives, the good and bad, of how humanity has risen and fallen into what it is today.
Maybe this blog will change you, make you talk to the person you ignore on the bus everyday. Maybe you will help someone who is struggling, or maybe you will reach out and lend a hand to someone who is drowning in silence. Most of all I just want you, the reader, to understand. Understand not who I am but who you are. Who you can become by opening your eyes to the world and recognizing that all around you there is beauty in this ugly place and it is up to you to find it.
Welcome to my blog.
